ST. PAUL, Minn., May 23, 2011 – St. Paul, Minn.-based Paster Enterprises, a leading manager and developer of neighborhood shopping centers in the Twin Cities, announced today that Jim’s Market, a local family owned and operated supermarket chain, is opening a 24,800-square-foot location in Doddway Center, located at the intersection of Smith Avenue South and Dodd Road in St. Paul.
